Constellation Necklace Giveaway from Boutique Academia

NOTE:  This giveaway is now CLOSED.

Maile from Boutique Academia has been a sponsor for a long time and a friend even longer.  If you haven't visited her shop in a while, she's constantly adding new pieces.

My husband, Eric has been especially into astronomy lately (seriously...a few months ago, the afternoon of the transit of Venus he went around the neighborhood rounding up people to come view it on the mirror/paper set-up he got working at our house.)  With him continually looking at the moon and stars this summer, it's been rubbing off on me and I've been learning a lot.  (Besides, what's more fun than hanging out with your husband star gazing?)

So I was especially excited to see Maile's new line of Constellation Necklaces.  She's got three designs:





And I think my personal favorite is The Southern Cross.
What a great way to show your love of faith and science at the same time!

All three designs come in either the black onyx or the steel pendant, and as with pretty much all of Maile's pieces, they're versatile enough to be worn with a T-shirt or a classy dress or anything in between.

Now here's the best part...Maile is hosting a giveaway.  The winner will get their choice of one constellation pendant necklace.  There are three easy ways to enter.
  • Become a follower of Helping Little Hands via GFC or Facebook and leave a comment on this post.  (Or if you already are a follower just tell me in your comment.) 
  • Head over to Boutique Academia and check out Maile's shop.  Then come back here and tell us what your favorite product is in a comment
  • "Like" Boutique Academia on Facebook and come back here and leave a comment.
PLEASE be sure that your Blogger account is linked to your email, so I have a way to contact you OR leave your email in your comment.  It's always such a bummer when someone wins who can't be contacted.  This giveaway will close at midnight PST on October 20, 2012 is now CLOSED.

Maile also as lots of other fun astronomy inspired pieces to check out.  Have fun browsing.

Thanks so much for entering!  And be sure to stop by all next week for more some fun constellation themed and geek inspired projects.
